Is your loved one in a nursing home? If so, you need to be aware of possible nursing home abuse. It is a serious problem that often goes undetected.
In the case of one family, the nursing home failed to provide adequate safety to a 78-year-old woman. After catching the abuse on tape, the family took action.
The victim, a 78-year-old female Alzheimer's patient, was being harassed by multiple staff members at the Pennsylvania nursing home. When the family tried to speak to the officials about the abuse, nothing was done to amend the situation. The family decided to take matters into their own hands, leaving a hidden camera in her room. What they found on the tape was horrifying. Three women were seen abusing and mocking the elderly woman, even forcing her to go topless at times.
Since that tape was released, the three women have been arrested and charged with assault and abuse.
